Re: Sonics @ Cavaliers

But basketball is a 5-on-5 game. Much like I bet Bobby Jackson or Steve Francis would crush Steve Nash one-on-one but I'd much rather have Nash on a team.

Re: Sonics @ Cavaliers

Awesome win. Everyone contributed well.

3: Sasha Pavovic - difference maker
2: Eric Snow - his offense keeps this team competitive
1: Zydrunas Ilgauskas - his athletic defense is Ben Wallace like!

Re: Sonics @ Cavaliers

"Z" has me worried... Should have dominated this game on the inside... But he will get a pass from me tonight considering we dominated...

Maybe this is what we are going to get with the offense we have ?

Everyone scored, everyone with something positive. There was no "I" in this team.

Henderson really played well. He should be playing 10-15 mpg.

To be honest, Varejao will find it tough to crack a run in front of Henderson. Alan does the little things very well, which is important for a playoff team.

I believe really pressed it a little tonight. Knew he was so much better and just forced things. He is an important cog in our offense and once we get our bearings together, he'll find his rythym too. Outside of his travels, his game was still solid in a game dominated by perimeter players penetrating.

Totally agree with that Karma.. He is exactly what teams need down the stretch... Very crafty, and is tough inside...Solid rebounder/defender..

Funny how all the other moves get all the acclaim.... I love guys like Henderson... A little bit like Weatherspoon of a few season ago, just in a much more limited role..

As much as I love Varejao and all his all NBA hustle game, he has many holes in his game that Henderson does not. Going into the playoffs, I will be more then comfortable with Marshall and Henderson as our primary backups. Alan may not come up with the diving steals, but he plays good defense, in which Varejao is not quite there yet.

Z has been pretty good so far defensively and on the offensive boards. He can still shoot the 18 footer at the elbow too. The only thing we haven't seen from Z this season is the ability to finish by the basket, where he seems to be coming up a bit short this year.

I think we have decent bigs... Just love Marshall and what he brings off the bench...

Drew has played well for the most part, and is a rebounding machine...Just needs to improve the rotations Arrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrgh :mad:

Hamilton and Henderson have played well.. Anderson will get some oppurtunites, but I remember saying when he went down, if there was one player we could afford to lose ? It was AV...

I felt with Marshall and Hughes's triple double abilities (which means he's a solid rebounder for a guard) we could afford to have AV miss some time, as the rebounds he was getting would be picked up by those two... I totally forgot about Henderson..

*I just can't wait until Hughes is in the groove with his mid range shot...

Still complaining about Z :rolleyes:

Mike Brown says he is a 8 or 9 man rotation kind of coach...so AV might have some trouble working his way in, but he is the future and Henderson is in the twilight of his career.

Snow did EXACTLY what he needs to do every night just take care of the ball and when Larry, Lebron or Z get you an open lane, just stroll in for a layup, that way he can save all his energy for defending the opposing gaurd (Ridnour 1-9 :thumbup: )

Gooden can do the same, but is a little stronger and can draw fouls well. He also in money from the line. This looks to be more of what I expected from this team. Hughes seems to be settling in more. Scoring seems a little off, but he is still doing everything else really well.

...we were ridiculous on the boards tonight.

Nice total team effort tonight. Things are slowly coming together at both ends. You can see the Cavs starting to develop better chemistry and understanding each other's game at the offensive end.
Like to see LeBron use his passing ability a little more though. He seems to be looking for his own offense more so far this season. Can't fault him too much though since it's been effective.

Bad night for Z. Just didn't seem to have it. Cavs still not looking for him too much offensively though. That needs to change.

I do have to agree about the solid effort Marshall and Henderson bring up front off the bench.

Let's not forget that Rashard Lewis went out the 2nd minute of the game. That really hurt Seattle. Sonics are a soft team inside and Cavs took advantage of it.

Cavs have taken care of business so far and won every game that they should have. Good teams do that.
